Beautiful Kenyan voice behind most viral covers, Wambui Katee has opened up on depression that left her with cuts and bruises on her thighs.
Sharing this on her Insta updates, she started off:
Heads up, I stopped cutting myself. Helping people helped me too. Depression is recurring so sometimes you lose it.. But over time, you learn how to fight it.
Depression can take a toll on you if you lose control of it and for her, her best cure was helping similar individuals through their own states, first.
However, she admitted that helping people was never her intention because all she ever wanted was to find her ´look-alikes´ and join in the bandwagon, to feel she actually belonged.
I had not intention to be of help to anyone when the group started. I was simply looking for people who felt as crazy as I did.. People who enjoyed pain.👀
While on a mission to find people going through the same, a WhatsApp group was formed, where a lot was shared.
In the process of finding people who felt mentally unstable😂, a whatsapp group came up and slowly people who shared their weirdest moments of depression and suicide trials started being helped by people in the group. Suggestions, opinions and meeting.. To stop people from committing suicide became more.
It became fruitful to her surprise and great numbers were assisted. This eventually led to the creation of an Instagram platform @depressionanxietkenya that seeks to address a larger audience.
Ms Katee goes ahead to reveal:
I show skin in most of my dress codes😂. So if you are keen you´ve seen bruises and cuts on my thighs. I used to cut myself to feel pain and have a reason to be mentally stable.
